If all of these explanations ring true for you, start sending us your resume!

Clock Watching

Do you find yourself staring off into space and daydreaming the majority your work day? The clock never seems to move fast enough! You are in a job that doesn’t challenge or excite you which results in you feeling bored at work. This is all too common but it shouldn’t be. When you are working in a career field where you are excited and challenged, the day seems to fly by. You will have days where you leave the office feeling rewarded and fulfilled after hard day’s work. This is what being in the right career feels like.

Poor Health

What people don’t realize is when you aren’t fulfilled with your job and dread going to work everyday, it can cause health issues. You may find yourself feeling tired, sluggish, over-stressed and generally unhappy. Sometimes this causes weight gain and other times it causes you to be more susceptible to getting sick. This can be directly tied to your job. Whether it’s the wrong career field or in a job with bad work/life balance, it’s time to consider a change. Finding a job with better benefits, employee appreciation and work life balance can contribute to your overall well being. If you identify with this feeling, it might be time for a change!

Lack of Motivation

We understand everyone wakes up on a Monday morning a little too tired and not quite ready for the week. That’s normal. When someone wakes up everyday dreading having to go to work, that’s not normal! Most people work for the better part of their life, and if you dread 5 out of the 7 days of the week, then that’s going to make the majority of your life pretty miserable. Don’t let this be you! Wake up with purpose and motivation. The right job feels that way.
